I’m still confused about this Oregon Legislature’s Special Session since we now have Annual Legislative Sessions, but what do I know! The wheels of government grind slowly with great urgency and at great length. And I’m a bit of a government wonk, so can also admit to enjoying the lawmaking process – and the show.
Speaking of shows:
If you need a break from the Oregon Capitol’s Halls of Government, the delightful Hallie Ford Museum of Art is across and down the street from the State Capitol.
The current traveling exhibit: Breath of Heaven, Breath of Earth: Ancient Near Eastern Art collection is wonderful from the “perky little bovid” to the exquisite seals.
The other Hallie Ford collections are also excellent. For a quick laugh and break from the real world, don’t miss Tom Foolery’s spotlight “Blue Chip” or Ken Butler’s bicycle seat springs violin.
